Welcome to the Official Home of the Sources of Urban Educational Excellence Conference


The 13th Annual Sources of Urban Educational Excellence Conference will be held in the Georgia State University College of Law on October 20, 2018. 


About the Theme


It’s About Visibility: Narratives, Critiques, and Collective Understanding in Urban Education. We are asking people to ponder the role of visibility in urban education. For the purposes of this conference, we are expanding the definition of visibility to include a focus on action, specifically about making the larger local-meets-national-meets-local conversations happening in urban education visible to all involved. At the same time, visibility-as-action gives policymakers and advocates access to direct narratives so that they can take informed actions toward sustainable solution

Our Story

Since 2005, the Sources of Urban Educational Excellence Conference has shaped discourse on the factors that define the social and academic experiences of children in urban communities and schools. The genesis of this conference was steeped in the affirmation of urban students and the teachers and their work to positively transform their own lives. From its inception, Sources has set out to share the reminder that brilliance in urban education is not unique and that the College of Education & Human Development produces teachers and leaders who are experts in the cultivation of urban educational excellence.
